This place was within walking distance from the city centre and rooms were very clean. I got free wifi which was great. Rooms are basic however the motel is quite cheap so I was not expecting luxury. Quiet guests meant a pleasant stay. Parking is good and I had a view of the mountain and the sea from my room.... More

Handy location. Nice, clean and tidy with car parking at the front door. In my room the quality of the beds were poor and yes I had a sore lower back the next morning (something I do not suffer from normally).

Stayed here for three days over new year. The motel is basic but clean with three sky channels. House keeping was done every day and unit was always neat and tidy when i got back. Found wi fi to be expensive but the signal strong. Bit of a walk to the town centre but not that you would get really... More

This is a basic motel where we stayed overnight. We were in a corner upstairs room which was quite comfortable, a peep of the sea view and was nice and quiet and clean. The en suite was very small with only a sliding door separating it from the rest of the room. The location is perfect, very close to downtown... More

At first we booked this place thinking its reasonably priced and that it has all the basics even though it is old and not as flash as most motor inns. What a bad decision! The beds are almost if not past their lifetime and the rooms are extremely noisy. Every toilet flush and pipeline service for the motor inn can... More

Good place to stop. Not too expensive. Good location. Staff very helpful. Everything else was booked out in town Braemar team were very helpful at short notice. Close to town. Close to coastal walkway. I believe the service provided is reflected in the price of the rooms.

We booked this place online. The pictures looked very nice however when we got there it was definitely not what we expected. The room was tidy enough although there were quite a few cobwebs about. Very old styled. Noisy people in the room next door that unfortunately I had to deal with myself. Unfortunately the lady working there wasn't too... More

This a pleasant surprise in central New Plymouth. Very clean and warm with a small kitchen area. The room was quiet despite the motel being close to the commercial centre. Worth a stay if you are on a budget . Friendly hosts and within walking distance of the beach and the excellent Puke Ariki visitor centre and museum. We spent... More

Typical NZ motel, but has everything you need and great value. Only a brisk walk of three blocks to the stunning rocky foreshore with the occasional beach. Similarly to the City centre with plenty of restaurants.
